How to get content removed from porn sites
The world wide web, smartphones and other tech gadgets are have been a great breakthrough. People all over the world are able to use them for numerous things. They can either go shopping, browse the web or do almost anything they wish. Unfortunately, there is also a negative side of this aspect. Because of folks abilities to record and upload images and videos to the web, abuses have been happening. Many are finding out that their personal images or videos have made their way online. Not only does this content appear in social media sites and other places, but adult sites. That’s where the real problem comes in.
Nothing can be worse than having compromising or sexually explicit images of yourself – or someone you know – appear online. Worse than images, there are thousands upon hundreds of thousands of homemade or non-professional pornographic videos. These amateur porn movies are often called ‘revenge porn’ or porn that’s uploaded without the consent of the person(s) who appear in it. Popular adult sites such as Pornhub and YouJizz are prime examples. Visitors can find endless amateur or revenge porn style type of movies. These videos are often uploaded by users or members of the site.
When this happens to you or someone you know, how can you have the content removed from these sites? The first thing that comes to a person’s mind is going to the police. There are some states which have strict laws against those who carry out revenge porn. But while they may be able to help you in bringing charges against someone, they cannot assist in removal of the content. Of course, this will vary, depending on the state you live in.
The best option is to contact the website where the videos or images are being hosted. You may have to go through several adult sites if the video has been shared or uploaded to other pages. Remember this is one of the reasons there is so much free porn found online today. Too many people are uploading personal and private homemade sex tapes daily to porn sites. That makes having your personal content removed that much harder.
Another option is using the Digital Millennium Copyright Act or DMCA. They offer services for people who have had their personal content shared online. DMCA helps victims of revenge porn and other similar issues. Going to the DMCA webpage directly is more problematic, but you will save money by doing it yourself. Some victims of revenge porn go an additional route and that is to sue the people who posted the content. You are unlikely to win against the adult sites though. Nonetheless, you may win your case against the individual(s) who posted your personal or private content. More so if they did it without your consent.
How to Beat Cyberbullies
When it is all said and done, sexually explicit content that belongs to people who never meant to share it with others has a way of finding itself online. The best way to protect your privacy is to make sure you never let anyone take compromising or sexually explicit images and videos of yourself.
